ABOUT FLY

Our Mission

San Jose Fly is a field hockey club dedicated to developing youth and high school girls’ field hockey skills. In the past couple of years, Fly has grown to include the U14 age group. In addition, we have recently expanded our high school age group offerings to try and offer training opportunities to athletes who are still learning the sport.

Our training sessions are led by an experienced coaching staff, with multiple coaches for each age group. We foster refined individual and team play through regular practices and participation in numerous tournaments throughout the spring season. For our Spring club season, we support U12, U14, U16 and U19 squads, and field multiple teams in all local small-sided tournaments in each age group. All squads regularly practice for 1.5 – 2 hours. We offer programs year-round, including an extended spring club season, a 5-week set of summer clinic sessions, a Fall youth League and small group training, as well as sending teams to national tournaments each year.

Our club is based in the mid-Peninsula area and welcomes athletes from a wide variety of both public and private schools. Because of the diversity of our player base, participation in Fly provides not only an opportunity to play with athletes from other schools, but also – especially through our tournament days – an opportunity to form friendships with girls from other schools and programs.

Our History

Fly was founded in 2001 by Archbishop Mitty Head Coach Justina Williams with a focus on training highly competitive high school players. Over the past 14 years, the club has grown to over 200 families. With a nod to a very successful history serving highly motivated high school players, we look forward to the next decade of growth as we seek to expand the playing opportunities for both high school and youth players.
